41) For which type of consolidation the Terzaghi’s theory of consolidation is invalid?
- a) Under- consolidation
- b) Pre-consolidation
- c) Secondary consolidation
- d) Normal- consolidation
Answer: c) Secondary consolidation.
• Because the dissipation of the excess hydrostatic pressure doesn’t govern the secondary consolidation.
• For the second type of consolidation, Terzaghi’s consolidation theory is invalid since it can’t be in use to find the rate of secondary consolidation.
